Ridge looks around and realizes he has fallen asleep and spent the night in his dads hospital room. He leans over him and tells him he is going to take off, not to worry, just focus on getting better. The company will be in good hands. And the nurses will know where he is in case anything changes with Eric. He tells his dad that his family needs him.... he needs him.
With Marcus looking on, Donna boxes up a very framed photos from Erics office. She tells Marcus she just wanted to take him some so he would wake up to something familiar. He spent so many happy years there in his office. Marcus points out that it might not be the best time though. When he was delivering a package last night he couldnt help but notice a document on his desk. Donna says she knows about it and not to worry. It was Ridges idea and she doesnt even want to discuss it with Eric so sick. She advises Marcus to go ahead and visit Eric as he was on his mind last night. He wants to put Marcus in his will. Marcus is blown away. Donna says family means everything to Eric and he wants to assure Marcus his future is secure. Shes not surprised as her husband has a big old heart and is always thinking of others.
While on duty, Bridget hovers over her dad and tells him not to worry as she is going to be there as much as she can. She tells him Nick just called and said the proofs were back from the wedding, and she cant wait to show him. He was so handsome that day. She is happy he was there to walk her down the aisle and she got to share that with him. She sniffles that she has a lot more she is counting on sharing.
Ridge walks in on Donna and asks what is she doing? She explains that she is taking some things to Eric, is it all right? He replies a lot of harsh words were said last night, but yes she may take the photos. Both agree they are on the same page, they think Eric will be okay. He tells her not to worry about Forrester Creations, he will take care of everything. Hell make sure things are run smoothly and she will be taken care of. His dad would want that. And when he is back there will always be a place for him around here. She says of course there will, he owns the company. He tells her there is something she should know. Last night when they closed the door and talked, Eric agreed to turn the company over to him and Brooke. So thats the way its gonna be, starting immediately. She tells him no, hes mistaken. He states that at first his dad was against it, but when they talked it over, he saw it was necessary and he came around. He asks Donna not to turn this into a negative thing. She thinks he is crazy if he expects Eric to turn over a company that he just bought back from Nick less than a year ago. Now suddenly he is not capable of running his own company or deserving to even own a piece of it. This is hardly a positive thing. He reminds her how much the company is in trouble, so why doesnt she just run be with Eric and let him take care of it? They need to make a statement to the press so their clients will know the company is in very capable, experienced hands. The lawyers will straighten out all the paperwork. She points out that the papers were never signed. Eric may have agreed to it, but he did change his mind later.
Marcus runs into Steffy at the hospital. They hug as she is distressed. She asks if he was at the hospital all night? He says yes, he just got Donna to go home and catch a shower. She didnt want to leave Erics side. Thorne ushers his mother into Erics room, reminding her that Eric is a very vital man, he will pull through this. He has to. She sits down beside Eric and tells Thorne that he came to see her the other night at the beach house. The night Bridget had her party and he just wanted to check up on her and cheer her. She said something silly, she doesnt remember what, but it made him laugh and she was so pleased that she had made him laugh. If I had thought .you foolish old man .. I love you, Eric. I love you more than anything in this world.
Ridge and Donna dicker back and forth about Eric changing his mind. Donna thinks she is correct since she spoke with him last. He scoffs that he is supposed to take her word on that? Its not like Eric can speak for himself. Ridge agrees neither were privy to the others conversation, so they should not argue about this. They should both be by Erics side or at the chapel praying that he will get well. She agrees that is one thing they have in common, both loving Eric. Ridge says and they can agree how much Eric loves the company and he cant be there to run it himself, so Ridge would like to do that for him.
Marcus sits besides Eric and is reverent, calls him Mr. Forrester, then corrects and says Eric, that is what he asked him to call him. He goes on how much he respects Eric and its been great being accepted by him and treated so well. Eric is a good man, the best hes known. He has to pull through as there is so much he wants to learn yet. He wants to live up to what Eric believes in and make him proud. So hang in there.
Marcus sees Steffy again who is visibly shaken. He tells her it is tough seeing Eric in bed and not in command the way he usually is. Steffy sighs and adds that she could always trust him, always confide in him, tell him her secrets. And now that she is all grown up, she still can. He always knew the right thing to say to make her feel better ..like she could use right now. She shares with Marcus that she is just so scared. He tells her he knows its not the same, but if she needs somebody to lean on, hes there. He gives her a kiss.
Finally Donna tells Ridge fine, he can run the company, but there is no reason that ownership has to be transferred now, not while Eric is in a coma. The only thing she wants to think of now is to get him well. Ridge says that is what they all want, but there is an intelligent way to handle this. She asks him to listen to her. Ownership does not have to happen now. Its not what Eric wants. If he wakes up to find his son did this, well she is not going to let that happen. He needs them to pull together to get well.
Ridge reminds her that hes known him much longer than Donna. Doesnt she think that Ridge is worried about him too? But he also knows what the company means to Eric. He loves Forrester Creations and its like another child. So when Donna says they cant take it away from him, Ridge doesnt think they can afford not to. Ridge can assure him the company will be in good hands and health. He can do that for him. Donna cant. And Ridge claims he is fully capable of running the company, Donna isnt. He gets the document and a pen and states that is why he is taking control of Forrester Creations right now. He signs it and says, there, its a done deal. As per dads request, Forrester Creations is now run by me.
